  • Intelligent Design is the theory that for a complicated system to exist there must be a designer. This theory applies to the creation of the world and the inhabitants of the world.

    Theologians and scientists have argued for centuries that certain natural features of our world are difficult to explain purely in naturalistic terms. The most famous of the design arguments is that of Paley's watchmaker. If you were to find a watch while crossing a field, what would you suppose about the origins of that watch? Would you think that the parts had all come together by chance, or would you suspect that the watch was the product of a watchmaker and that someone had dropped the watch as he or she passed by? Paley argues that because of the intricate design and function of the timepiece, there must have been a designer, "who formed it for a purpose which we find it actually to answer, who comprehended its construction and designed its use
